Well I have 200$ from birthday and Christmas hanging in my wallet and I haven’t spent it on anything in awhile. I haven’t been playing guitar very long only 4 months, but all of a sudden it popped in my head "Dumbass, get a pedal!" I don’t have any experience with pedals but I've heard some really cool ones. Can anyone recommend a pedal for no more than 200$, I don’t mind something like a 250$ used pedal for 175$ at guitar center as long as you give me the link.

I play rock/metal

New question!


Can I play a wah pedal play through a microcube as I heard the cube cant play multi effects so can it play just a regular wah?

if you already have the sound you want you could get somethin like a digitech whammy for 200ish, but it wont be of much use depending on what you're playing

distortion wise a good recommendation would be the Digitech DF7 and multieffects would be a Boss ME-50 just stay away from Digitech rps and zoom pedals

Not really sure to be honest, I just knew I should probably get one

*Cheap zoom pedals* The G series are better than boss ME-50 by far.

this, and I can vouch for the ME-50 personally. It's very good, and you might be able to find on e used for around 200-250.

you could just get a Line 6 digital amp with a million different sounds, but you'll regret it in the long run. I personally have a Digitech RP250 and it works great for if you wanna play by yourself, but its kind of a bitch to move if you wanna play with friends.

I havent found too many quiet amps that have many many effects tho, thats my problem, I'm a play-at-home person.

I haven't read through the thread b/c i'm in a bit of a hurry, but if you have a microcube, doesn't it have some built in effects? I haven't used it with pedals, but i've heard it said it doesn't take pedals well, so that's worth trying out. But if I were you, i'd just save the money towards an upgraded amp. You're far away from that, I know, but if you already have most effects you'll need built in, might as well save the money rather than waste it on something you either don't need or will grow tired of down the road.

^Buying a cheap amp then a multieffects pedal is a waste of money. You may as well just spend that money on a good amp.

I'm not sure. Try it, but doesn't your microcube already have the effects that a multi-effects pedal would have?

You could, but it won't really sound good. I second the idea that you save for a nice amp.


Yes but what it a nice amp that isn’t loud (I only play at home) but is what you classify as “nice”

True, I guess now that I think of it what I really wanted was a wah pedal , so, in that case, could a microcube use a wah pedal, and would that be smart, just buy a 60$ wah and then save for an amp?

Not a bad idea, i suppose. You're looking at a Dunlop Crybaby, i take it? It's not really a good wah pedal, to me.
